Secure CLASP Plug-in for the Rational Unified Process has successfully=20
validated to the requirements of Ready for IBM Rational software V3.0.2=20
The plug-in met the requirements for the IBM Software Development Platform =

Software Development Lifecycle and Process level of the program, giving=20
Secure Software their second RFRS validated solution. For more information =

on this validation, see the Plug-In Central website on developerWorks:=20
http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/websphere/downloads/pl ugin/

Detailed Solution Description:
CLASP (Comprehensive, Lightweight Application Security Process) provides a =

structured way to address security concerns during software development.=20
Implemented as a Rational Unified Process Plug-In, CLASP delivers=20
contextual guidance on over 30 security-related activities organizations=20
can adopt throughout their application development lifecycle. CLASP=20
enables a well-organized and structured approach for moving security=20
concerns into the early stages of the software development lifecycle,=20
where remediation costs ? and risks ? are low.

CLASP can be integrated into any software development process. It?s=20
designed to be both effective and easy to adopt. It takes a prescriptive=20
approach, and documents activities that organizations should be doing.=20
And, it provides an extensive wealth of security resources that make=20
implementing those activities reasonable, particularly when also=20
introducing tools to help automate process pieces.

CLASP?s comprehensive documentation of activities provides a strong=20
framework that enables organization to address issues previously dealt=20
with in an ad hoc manner, if at all. CLASP supports those activities with=20
a number of security resources that enable individuals with even limited=20
security expertise to improve the integrity of their applications. These=20
resources include detailed descriptions of dozens of important concepts,=20
principles, and standards; the CLASP Root Cause Database; a Code=20
Inspection Worksheet, and more.

Functional Description:
Secure Software's CLASP (Comprehensive, Lightweight Application Security=20
Process) Plug-in for the Rational Unified Process provides role-specific=20
application security advice, artifacts, and guidance to:=20
* Application Developers=20
* Application Architects=20
